Healthcare in the U.S. has become extremely competitive. With hospital ratings and patient experience data available to the public, patients and their loved ones have become savvy consumers, looking to find the very best care. Today, the model of care is no longer viewed through a purely clinical lens. The modern definition of healthcare has expanded to include the entire patient experience, ranging from pre-admission, parking availability, way-finding, food service, cleanliness of the room, all the way to the responsiveness of call bells, how well a care team works together, and accommodations of visitors and family.

“The guest relations assistants are a vital part of our customer service team in the emergency center. Often times, an emergency medicine physician or nurse are rushed and focus so much of their efforts on the patient’s medical condition and unfortunately not enough time or attention on patients in whole. Their feelings, concerns, questions often are perceived as having secondary importance. Guest relations assistants help us bridge the gap and assist us in providing spiritually centered holistic patient care.”
